The Montgomery County 4-H Fair is just around the corner and we are so excited to welcome back our community members for 2021. It is our hope that community members will help celebrate our 4-H youth and what they have learned and accomplished within the last year.
While we plan to bring back many of the same sights and sounds that fairgoers are used to, we are also adding a few new features. One new feature is three “Education Stations” that will be led by our 4-H Junior Leaders. “Education Stations” will be free to other youth that visit the fair and held in the 4-H Building. There is no age guidelines but elementary-age youth would benefit most from the experience.
“Education Stations” will provide hands-on activities that focus on the three Mission Areas of 4-H: Science, Healthy Living, and Civic Engagement. These three mission areas all intertwine and can be integrated across various areas and activities. They also serve as the educational foundation of the 4-H program.
Dates and times for the “Education Stations” are:
• Science will be Saturday, July 17th from 4 -5 p.m.
• Civic Engagement will be Sunday, July 18th from 4 - 5 p.m.
• Healthy Living will be Tuesday, July 20th from 4 - 5 p.m.
“Education Stations” provide a small glimpse into what youth can expect from various 4-H programs and meetings. 4-H helps youth develop and enhance life skills through various hands-on learning experiences. We look forward to seeing your youth visit the “Education Stations” for this fun hands-on learning experience. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Purdue Extension Montgomery County office at (765)364-6363.
